Kitten Care

Every one of our kittens has been raised like royalty in a clean and warm environment best suited to them and their welfare. Kittens are easily vulnerable to stress from stress-related situations like isolation, the cold, loud children, other animals, and wearing collars. Stress can weaken their immune system and cause illness or even death.
If you aren’t often home to spend time with your kitten or you away from home all day a second kitten would be ideal to keep your existing kitten company. These kittens are raised with love and care surrounded by the whole family and would love to be part of the family in every way.

British Shorthairs are excellent indoor cats and should be protected from car accidents, dog attacks, Feline Aids (from other cat bites) as well as intestinal parasites from rodents and birds.
Keep your kitten safe and secure in your home and do not let them out on the street. They do need fresh air though so an outdoor enclosure is highly recommended.
Love your baby and make sure they are warm, healthy, happy and have access to food at all times.

How to prepare for a new kitten

Рave you got everything in place for your kitten’s arrival?Prepare everything in time for bringing your new kitten home.
Experiencing a new home is daunting for a tiny kitten, as he is leaving his mum, siblings and the home he was born in. Therefore the transition should be as smooth as possible, in order to help your kitten settle into his new home.
Kitten-proof your home
When you have a new kitten, you need to see your home through completely fresh eyes, as there are so many potential dangers, which might not affect humans, but could seriously injure tiny kittens. Follow our tips on how to ensure your home is not only kitten-friendly but also kitten-safe.
Living Room
Wires – cables for your TV, table lamps, or phone chargers may tempt an inquisitive kitten as a game or something to chew. Tidy them away, fit cable tidies or block the kitten’s access.

Chimneys – a dark hole can prove very appealing to a curious kitten who could climb up and get stuck. Buy a fireguard, and, when not in use, block your chimney.

Flowers and plants – many plants are toxic to cats, including lilies, azalea, cyclamen, and chrysanthemums, so keep these out of your house.

Hot drinks – a mischievous kitten may knock your cup over and risk being scalded, so keep them safely out of reach.

Curtains – curious kittens are notorious for scurrying up curtains, so if you have floor-length curtains, you may want to consider swapping them for sill-length drapes or blinds (keeping the latter fastened up safely).

Hot hobs – keep your kitten off worktops for safety as well as hygiene reasons. A hot cooker can cause nasty burns.
Fridges – tiny kittens could easily hop in unnoticed when you are putting the milk away, so always beware of where your kitten is when you are in the kitchen.
Cleaning products – bleach, disinfectant, laundry liquids and powders are toxic to both humans and cats, so store in a cupboard fitted with a child lock. Mop up spills immediately.
Utility Room
Appliances – washing machines and tumble dryers are tempting hiding places, and cats have been known to endure a wash or dry cycle because their owners hadn’t realized they were inside. Keep the doors closed and check before switch on.
Iron –  ironing board is a tempting platform for a kitten to jump onto – and potentially send flying! Don’t turn your back for too long when ironing and store the hot iron and board away as soon as you’ve finished. 
Stairs – kittens may end up with nasty injuries if they fall through the bannisters, so invest in a stair gate that your kitten can’t climb through or up and over, or block the gaps between the bannisters with a thick cardboard sheet.
Beauty products – toiletries such as deodorants, body lotions, and hair products contain ingredients that are potentially poisonous to kittens, so store and use them carefully.
Hair straighteners/curlers – these can cause nasty burns if left lying around when hot. Place them somewhere safe for them to cool after use, and be careful with the flex as some cats will be tempted to chew it. 
Toilet – always keep the toilet seat down. Kittens can be fascinated by the swirling water and could leap in, putting them in danger of either drowning or being poisoned by any toxic chemicals in the toilet bowl.
Bath – never leave a bath running or full bath unattended, as a curious kitten could fall in, be scalded, or drown.
Medicines – it’s vital to keep all medicines safely locked away, as it can be tempting for a kitten to play with loose pills, or worse, chew them, with dire consequences!
